    export posts to rtf, html or pdf

    If this is addressed to me...as the quote from Brogan seems to imply...read post #3 and #5. For admin and for the sponsoring organization's archiving purposes. Way too long...which is why I asked if there was an export function. And why I asked, in post #1, "Does Xenforo have a utility to...

    export posts to rtf, html or pdf

    Tell me more about this. I know that all these forum softwares use mySQL databases. My present software (Discusware) does as well, but not for posts, I don't believe. That said I am aware that the server (my server) hosts the MySQL database and it also gives me an interface to access it. But...

    export posts to rtf, html or pdf

    An update... I clicked on the permalink number and selected pdfmyurl. In mere seconds it converted the whole topic to pdf and downloaded it into a pdf reader (I could have saved it as well). I tried another topic with 169 posts and again the whole lot of them were converted to pdf pdq...

    export posts to rtf, html or pdf

    Thank you. Two questions... First, I tried that and it is either not working or it is extremely slow. Or maybe I'm missing something. Not a viable solution in any context at this rate. Second, it appears to be a "one post at a time" thing...is that correct? I really would prefer that the...

    export posts to rtf, html or pdf

    Does Xenforo have a utility to export all the posts in a particular topic/forum to rich text format or html or pdf? I have a very old discus board that has been up and running for 15 years. The mission statement is to collect, "preserve and protect" the information posted on the board. On the...

    It might. Would members have to install Silverlight on their computers to see an uploaded wmv?

    quick question....

    Ah. that seems a little different than the image loading conventions I am used to on vBulletin and phpBB boards. I post to a lot of vBulletin boards and the image icon on the toolbar is almost always the gateway to posting a photo stored on your local HD. I assumed it was the same for XF. No...

    quick question....

    Close...how do I do that? I didn't see the ability to do anything but link to a remote image. Even here in this editing window if I want to post a photo, I click on the "image" icon and all I get is the option to link to a url. What is the url of my local HD?

    quick question....

    Yeah, I saw that. I saw it again in the demo and I successfully added a smiley from a remote site that I have access to. Well, forgive me if I'm making this more complicated than it is. But if I place a link here on this forum to a photo on a remote site...such as Flickr...and Flickr crashes...

    quick question....

    Well, let me approach it this way...at what url are the default smilies located? I just want the smiley to be a permanent part of xenforo...that way if the url containing the linked-to smiley goes down the smiley will still be available.
